Drop-in Life Drawing Sessions

Schedule Changes – Starting February 3rd
Regular Drawing sessions:

Open, uninstructed, on-going, three times a week.

Saturday Mornings 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m
Sunday Mornings 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m
Wednesday Afternoons 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Draw from a wide variety of Portland’s best models and express yourself. Work with the figure on your own terms in a relaxed but conscientious environment (poses start on time). Beginners are welcome.

Drawing benches and boards, easels and tables are provided. You bring the media. Typically, we start with gestures and work toward poses of 30-45 minutes (See Long Term Poses).

Doors open 30 minutes before each session. Come early to get a good spot, visit with other artists or draw from studio mascot, Mort the skeleton.

$15 / SESSION or $75 / 5 SESSIONS (8 week time limit)
